CPR Station Move Time Lapse Video

What a great experience to be a part of the historical move of the CPR station in Goderich.  Laurie McCulloch Building Movers lifted the 400 ton building and moved it 250ft closer to Lake Huron, to become a future restaurant. It took the company just over 3 months to prepare the building and move it to the new location.  We time lapsed 4 days of the last 2 weeks of the move, with 4 cameras.

Nagata Shachu

Nagata Shachu has the unique distinction of being the only group outside of Japan with the sponsorship of four major Japanese drum manufacturers…a testament to their mastery of the art form. In addition to having recorded five CDs of original music and two live DVDs, Nagata Shachu, produces its own annual concert where it premieres new works and collaborates with guest artists.

Featuring an arsenal of taiko (including the massive O-Daiko drum), bamboo flutes, the three-stringed shamisen and an array of gongs, cymbals, shakers and wood blocks, Nagata Shachu will take you on a musical journey beyond all borders.

White Pine Dancers

For the past eight years, Gonrah Desgohwah White Pine Dancers have performed for over 35,000 guests both locally and internationally in some of Southern Ontario’s most celebrated educational venues! Audiences across Southern Ontario and beyond have stated that our performance was not only entertaining, but educational as well. Many audience members commented that they had learned more about First Nations culture during our one hour performance then they had anywhere else! Our performances are interactive as well as colourful and vibrant. Our audiences always come away with a smile on their face, a smile in their spirit and a smile in their hearts…

Maracatu Baque Bamba

is an upbeat Afro Brazilian percussion group that specializes in performing and teaching the spirited cultural tradition celebrated as Maracatu de Baque Virado. The high powered group was founded by the gifted singer/songwriter and percussionist Aline Morales in 2009. Through its lively rhythmic synergy the troupe channels the raw force of the drums to create a dynamic percussive sound. In addition to its musical interpretation of Maracatu and other folkloric rhythms from the northeastern region of Brazil (Ciranda,Coco, Ijexa and more), the collective of local artists explores traditions of song and dance from this region.

Online Voting for the People’s Choice Award Open Until February 19

WHISTLER, BC, January 22, 2013 – Pemberton-based professional photographer, Russell Dalby was crowned the 2013 “King of Storms” on Saturday night at the 7th Annual ARC’TERYX Deep Winter Photo Challenge, presented by GORE-TEX®. This was the first time the Ontario native had competed in the competition and he brought with him a fresh perspective.

“I wanted to tell a story and showcase the lifestyle behind skiing and riding everyday on the hill,” said Dalby. “A lot of photographers focus too much on the action and getting the most epic shots possible. I wanted to tell the entire story.” 

Dalby’s plan worked. His all black and white slideshow juxtaposed images of a guitar with action ski shots of pro skier, Dan Treadway. His show even included a cameo from The Hairfarmers, a cover band from Pemberton who are a Whistler apr├Ęs scene staple. Dalby’s all-encompassing show resulted in him taking home the first place prize of $5000. The second place prize of $2500 went to two-time competitor and Deep Summer 2012 winner Reuben Krabbe; while the third place prize of $1000 went to Andrew Strain, a last minute addition to the competition after another photographer dropped out.

The rest of the photographer lineup included Chris Christie, Nic Alegre and Mike Helfrich. Helfrich’s perfectly timed black and white photo of a snowboarder gapping the Whistler Creek was named Best in Show by the judges and earned him $500.

For the second year in a row, the judges’ opinions are not the only ones that matter. Anyone can head online to vote on the ARC’TERYX Deep Winter Photo Challenge presented by GORE TEX® People’s Choice Award through to February 19. Each photographer has submitted three photographs and the public has the chance to vote for their favorite at the Whistler Blackcomb Facebook Page. Social Media played an ever-growing role in the competition with many of the Deep Winter athletes, photographers and spectators tweeting and sharing photos live throughout the competition. To find unique behind-the-scenes video, photos, and other interesting commentary, search #deepwinter on Twitter or Instagram.

All six of the photographers had three days to shoot in-bounds at Whistler Blackcomb with their athlete teams and the final slideshows were played in front of a sold-out audience of 1,100 spectators and five judges at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. The judging panel included: Photo Editor at Coast Mountain Culture Magazine, Peter Moynes; veteran photographer and Whistler household name, Eric Berger; freelance photographer for CanWest Global newspaper, Bonny Mackarewicz; former Director of Photography at SKI Magazine, Keri Bascetta; and ski photography legend and original King of Storms, Paul Morrison. 

The ARC’TERYX Deep Winter Photo Challenge Presented by GORE-TEX® has come to end but Whistler Blackcomb hosts a number of events throughout the entire season.
